Google launched a number of updates to Cloud Print, on Tuesday and brought it to Windows making it easier to share printers with others.
In this regard, Google said, “Even we know that there are still some occasions when you just need to print something, so for the last few years, the company has been steadily improving this service. At its core, Cloud Print allows you to share your printers with others and print virtually anything from anywhere.”
The launch of the Cloud Print Service for Windows allows admins to easily connect their printers in their businesses. The service runs in the background and connects the printers to Google’s cloud. It’s officially in beta, so, requires Chrome. It is compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP, however, with the Windows XPS Essentials Pack installed.
The other tool is Google Cloud Printer for Windows, which is essentially a printer driver for Windows. With it, one can easily print to Cloud Print from any application on the computer.
Google also makes it easier to share printers by providing with a link. Limits for how many pages a given user can print per day can be set through this.
